Anthony Miller might return from a shoulder injury on Sunday. The Bears’ rookie receiver practiced in full for the first time Wednesday since he suffered a dislocated left shoulder against the Cardinals.

“He’s been positive, he’s been energetic,” coach Matt Nagy said. “He’s been in the classroom learning and learning away.”

In three games, Miller has eight receptions on 11 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown.

The Bears sent a 2019 second-round pick to the Patriots to select Miller in the second round this year, and consider him an integral part of Nagy’s offense. Nagy said earlier this week that the biggest challenge will be extending his arms high into the air to catch a pass.
